    I worked at Brainware full-time (more than a year)


    Lots of opportunity to showcase your stuff. If you have drive and ability, you will do just fine. The software suite is excellent.


    Disorganized at times. Limited promotion ability due to mainly flat structure. Management can be mercurial at times.

    Neutral Outlook

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Brainware in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by their internal recruiter (who, by the way, is not an employee but a contractor). I had an initial telephone screening with her and then she told me that I would be contacted the next week by their CFO. A date and time had been arranged for him to call me. He blew me off and I had to call the recruiter to let her know that he had missed our scheduled meeting. That should have been my first red flag with this company. She rescheduled our phone screen and I connected with the CFO. I then was scheduled to come into their office in Ashburn and meet with the recruiter, a telephone interview with the EA to the President of the company and the HR Director. All went so well they made me a verbal offer and discussed my start date and contacted all my references. They got back to me that my references were excellent and they were working on getting my salary approved by their "audit committee". That all took place on July 11th and it is now August 13th and they totally disappeared and I have never heard from them again. I always say "the best that you will ever be treated by a company is during the recruiting process." And if this is the best I will ever be treated, well, you can keep your job and good luck to the next candidate. I have never, in my 30 year career, EVER been treated so unprofessionally by an organization.

    Negotiation Details
    My advice to other applicants/candidates is to run as fast as you can away from this totally unprofessional corporation.
